  1. Golden age of rugby. No pissing around getting the ball teed up, just dig a hole to get it to stand up, then give it some welly. I was lucky enough to go to the 5 Nations matches in the 60s and 70s, when rugby was rugby.

  2. Legendary kick, those balls back then in the rain would weigh 3/ 4 times heavier than today's balls. This is also legendary due to what I consider the voice of rugby Bill McLaren OBE. He was and still is the voice of rugby. From a proud Welshman.

  3. I was standing in the crowd right in front of the posts, old West Lower. it didn't look like it was going to reach and most only believed it was going over when it had actually gone over. Incredible.
